'Golem' Comes This Spring - Screens & Trailer

by Rainier on March 7, 2018 @ 9:54 a.m. PST

Golem is a side-scrolling, single-player game that follows the journey of an adventurous young girl and the mysterious golem as they form a unique friendship while solving the puzzles of an ancient tower.

No one knew who built the ancient tower that loomed beside the coast. The young girl figured water must have once flowed down its giant aqueducts into her village, but even her grandfather couldn't remember seeing the mill's old water wheel turn. These days it is the job of her and the other children to trek to-and-from the tower to collect what little water bubbled up from the ground. But everything is about to change. After finding a glowing orb beneath the puddles and the hidden tower door ajar for the first time in centuries, she is about to embark on a journey to change her and her village’s life forever.

In Golem you control the two main characters and utilize their complimentary skills to navigate the tower's ruins and activate its elaborate machines. Gameplay evolves alongside the golem, as the player discovers new golem forms which each unlock increasingly complex behaviours. The story of the characters, and their connection to the tower, is told through gameplay and exploration without any dialogue or narration.

Key Features:

  • Explore and navigate through 10 expansive levels, from the caverns deep below the tower to the windswept turrets perched above the surrounding desert.
  • Using the unique skills of the girl and the golem, solve the tower's puzzles to navigate the broken ruins and re-activate its long dormant machines.
  • Help the golem evolve through five unique forms that each bring new abilities to aid the two companions on their journey.
  • Decipher the tower's cryptic pictographs to find clues to its ancient builders and the origins of the mysterious golem.

Golem will be released on Steam and other major digital distribution platforms in Spring 2018.
